What is Mindset?

"Students who believed their intelligence could be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those who believed their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset). And when students learned through a structured program that they could “grow their brains” and increase their intellectual abilities, they did better." -Dr. Carol Dweck, "Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset'"
